the legacy of dr. king. i think martin luther king would agree with me if he were alive today. >> stephen: yes, dr. king would be pro-gun just as surely as jesus would be pro-nail. [ laughter ] because like mr. ward, dr. king understood that the root of all oppression is lack of firepower. [ laughter ] >> if african-americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. [ laughter ] >> stephen: yes! if only america's founders had turned to the people they owned and chained into servitude and said, "here's your gun. use it responsibly." [ laughter ] i guess all larry ward is saying is that america would be a better place if george washington and thomas jefferson had been shot by their slaves. [ laughter ] because he's a reasonable man -- of course, not as reasonable as this debate's sanest voice the motor city madman, ted tugent! who, it turns out, is crazy for tolerance. telling worldnet daily, "there will come a time when the gun owners of america -- will be the rosa parks and we will

that dr. king had that said there is right thing. i just try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminate hunger, walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> barack obama was a little- known state senator from an aillinois. the third african-american in the u.s. senate. i spoke to him after his great victory in illinois at a time when most people knew him as a skinny kid with a funny name from the south side of chicago. the phrase you have been accustomed to using, the skinny kid with a funny name from the south side of chicago. beyond that issue, how did you get beyond getting beyonpeople o vote for a guy whose name they could not renounce? >> they still screw it up sometimes. the call me alabama or yo mama. one thing that i confirmed in this race is the american people are decent people. they get confused sometimes. they're busy. there stressed. they are tired. sometimes they are watching fox news, that will ge
of a saint dressed in the skin of a baby boy by the name of martin luther king, jr. and while dr. king's legacy has been most accurately described in terms of his nonviolent pursuit of civil rights, some unfortunate and deluded individuals have tried to claim that a gun appreciation day this coming weekend will somehow honor the great man's legacy. it's such nonsense that it's hardly worth the time refuting. but as the president now reflects upon recommendations from his gun violence task force, there are some words of dr. king that seem particularly pertinent. in his famous letter from birmingham jail written in 1963, dr. king spelled out the perennial danger of doing nothing because doing something may be difficult. as we continue to remember those 20 children and 6 staff members who were shot and killed at that elementary school in newtown, connecticut, let's heed the words of dr. king. we will have to repent in this generation, he wrote, not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people, but fohe
, the way it looks. [ laughter ] >> stephen: so sad, banning a gun based on it's color. i'm sure if dr. king were alive, he'd be standing with the nra because it's just a little too convenient to be blaming guns for gun violence. [ laughter ] especially when the nra has identified the real culprits. >> vicious, violent video games, blood-soaked slasher films, our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill. >> stephen: clearly, the reason we have more gun deaths than anyone else in the industrialized world isn't the guns. it must be that america is the only country in the world that has video games. we're the only country that has violent movies and we're the only country with crazy people. [ laughter ] maybe not the only country, but certainly we've got the craziest people. [ laughter ] and you don't have to take my word for it. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police in and securing our school to protecdt our children, then call me crazy. [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] >> stephen: i don't know about you, but i agree with wayne lapierre. you, sir, are
